No. Not legally. If the couple received a valid license to be married and did so, they are legally married. The license would have had to be signed at the time it was received at the clerk's office, and would only have been issued if the proper indentification and requirements were met. The married couple is not required to file their own proof of marriage. The legal validation of the union is finalized by the judge, minister or whomever performs the ceremony issuing of the marriage certificate. A marriage license is NOT acceptable proof of a legal marriage.
You should check at the town clerk where you were married to see if the official who performed the marriage filed the license after they signed it.You should check at the town clerk where you were married to see if the official who performed the marriage filed the license after they signed it.You should check at the town clerk where you were married to see if the official who performed the marriage filed the license after they signed it.You should check at the town clerk where you were married to see if the official who performed the marriage filed the license after they signed it.
No, the marriage has to be formalized by a member of the clergy or a court official. They sign the license and it is filed with the clerk.
You have nothing to file in the US. The documents have to be filed in Jamaica.
You have a marriage certificate from the county. Which means the license was properly obtained, signed by the officiating individual and the proper number of witnesses. A copy can be obtained from the county courthouse where the license was filed.
no it is not legal
depends how you look at it.i say so.but by law and stuff your not,not married your just unknown
It does not mean the marriage has taken place. The license must be properly executed for the marriage to be legal.
If you were previously married, you may have to show that you are legally single. If the license was never filed as completed, it shouldn't be an issue.
Yes. Marriage license can be filed in California and the wedding can be in NJ
No..because if the license was never filed with the State then you were not legally married to begin with....
Yes, you have to contact Las Vegas. That is where the license was obtained and should have been filed.
No not at all!
You Should Be Able To Get A Copy From The Clerks Office In State And County Of Marriage. Call They Will Tell You The Person To See. * A marriage license is not "turned in", either the couple are married or the license expires and is no longer valid. A license that was issued more than a year ago would by now have expired if the marriage never took place. A marriage license is not proof of a valid marriage. The document that verifies a legal marriage is the marriage certificate which is signed by the person who performs the ceremony (minister, judge, JP, etc.)and filed with the vital records division in the state where the marriage takes place. Likewise, a copy of the certificate can be obtained from the state's division of vital records in the state where the marriage was performed.
No, the license has to be filed to be valid. And it cannot be used in Canada.
Sure. If she was a legal notary and your license was filed with the state.
technically you are considered married in the us, but if you don't tell, nobody will ever know.
A marriage certificate isn't 'filed', its just something you have to get from the city or county you live in. It's like a drivers license - it just shows that the government gave you permission to get married. There's no fraud involved, unless your spouse misrepresented himself when getting the license.
No. You need to file with the state. Most often the person who performs the wedding is the person who files it .
Was a marriage license obtained and filed with the court house? If they accepted the filled out application, then it is legal.**************Any marriage performed by a ULC Minister in the state of CA is legal if the license was obtained, signed and filed with the court house. No pre-registration from the minister is required.Second answer written by Rev. Amy Long
Check with a family law attorney, but copies must be filed with the county issuing the license, not the state office. If a marriage license was issued and a ceremony was performed by a magistrate or ordained minister the license should be returned to the county that issued the license. If it was lost by the post office, a delayed marriage license can be filed. Check with the issuing Register of Deed's office, not Raleigh.
It should be filed with the appropriate county. Check their web site to see if it is available.
In Iowa, as you know, you apply for your marriage license at any County Recorder's Office. I would assume that both of you including your witness signed the marriage license application when you applied. Therefore, I'm guessing that you didn't sign the marriage certificate after the wedding ceremony. The marriage certificate is returned to the County Recorder's Office for recording. Since the ceremony was indeed performed, I doubt that the marriage is invalid. I suggest that you contact the County Recorder's Office to confirm that the marriage records have been filed. Attached is a link for obtaining marriage records in all of the counties in Iowa. Using the link, you can find contact information for your specific county.
The marriage license in itself does not certify that a legal union has taken place. The marriage certificate signed by the person who is authorized to perform marriages is proof of a legal marriage. A copy of the marriage certificate is given to the couple after the marriage ceremony, then the marriage license/cerificate is (or should be) filed by the person who performed the wedding with the state's vital statistics bureau. Confirmation of legal marriages are filed with the state bureau of vital statistics and in copies should be available from the city or county where the marriage occurred. If the city or county cannot find the document the interested party should contact the bureau of vital statistics at the state capital. The absence of the document does not necessarily mean the marriage is not legally valid, although it may create some difficulty when engaging in certain transactions such as Social Security benefits.
Yes, a marriage is legal if you are married in Jamaica and live in Georgia. Any marriage is legal as long as the proper paperwork was filed with the court.
